A purported video of gangster Goldy Brar has surfaced wherein he claimed that he was not held and nor was he in the US, days after Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann claimed that the mastermind behind the Sidhu Moose Wala murder has been detained in California, reported India Today.

CM Mann on 2 December had confirmed that Brar had been detained by the police in California and that he would “definitely be brought to India”. He will be in the custody of the Punjab Police “very soon”, Mann had told reporters.

“The CM without even waiting for the endorsement of the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs went ahead with the statement. He wanted to impress the voters that they got hold of killer of Sidhu Moose Wala,” Leader of Opposition Pratap Singh Bajwa told India Today.

Brar in a purported interview given to a journalist on YouTube denied the detention claims. However, the authenticity of the interview could not be ascertained, as per the report.

In the video, the person calling himself Goldy Brar claimed that he had not been detained and also he was not in the US. In the audio clip of the interview, he could be heard contradicting Mann’s claims about his detention.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moosewala, was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district on 29 May. Goldy Brar, a member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, claimed responsibility for the singer’s murder. A red corner notice, which allows the arrest and detention of a fugitive abroad, was issued against him, reads the report.

Moosewala’s murder was in retaliation to youth Akali leader Vicky Middukhera’s killing that took place last year.
